I just want to double check that what this website is saying is true

Sorting Arrays In VBA

that you cannot alphabetically sort members of an array in Excel VBA. The reason why I want to do this is because I'm going to have array of about 60 members. I need to find out if it at least two of the members match. I could really speed things up if I could just sort them, then go down the list and check if one member matches it's preceding member. Otherwise, I'm going to have to:

Code:
For i = 1 to ubound(array)
  For j = 1 to ubound(array)
      If array(i) = array(j) then
       match
      end if
   next
next
